4. About the Author

Hyeong Min-wu made his debut as a comic writer with “Chronicle of Mr. Chi’s Post” in 1993 and since then, he has been in the forefront of introducing Korean comic books abroad with his distinctive style of storytelling and illustration. His works include “Freest,” “The Emperor’s Battle Record,” “Ghost Face,” “Battle of Mushin,” and “The Goryeo Army.” Among these, “Freest,” was recreated into an online game and was imported to China andmade into a Hollywood film. The copyright to “Ghost Face,” Korea’s first graphic novel, was sold to Germany, France, Spain, and the U.S.A. He was the winner of 1999 Korea Comic Book and Culture Grand Prize in the category of publication by new writer and 2002 recipient of Korean Comic Book Today Award.

 

 

5. About the Book

This action-packed comic book tells the story that takes place in the Wild West during the turbulent pioneering period; it asks fundamental questions about humans and god. The story is unique in that instead of Europe that is the usual setting for the theme of divinity, the desolate wilderness of the West was opted for. With its exceptional choice of the backdrop and the dissolution of the traditional confrontational set up of good and evil, and the premise that there is no absolute good or bad, the series drew great attention from the beginning of its serialization.
It is a story of vengeance—a young priest, Ivan sells his soul to a devil in order to take vengeance on another devil who took everything away from him. The comic book is illustrated in a rough but seductive style that gets readers enamored with the young priest who may come off as being even more corrupt than the devil himself, for he will not stop his pursuit of vengeance even though he is violated time and again. The character of Ivan who struggles between god and the devil and persists non-stop in his will to avenge the devil is not far off from men and it became the first Korean comic book to be filmed as a Hollywood movie.

4. About the Author

A feminist, she came across the movement for the physically challenged while questioning the status quo and as a postcolonial feminist, she became involved in the Palestine Movement. She values intersectionality and advocates region- and form-free activism. Beginning at Womenlink, a feminist group, she worked full-time at different social organizations; since she became ill, she participated as a non-standing commissioner. Her health deteriorated after her active participation in Palestine in 2009 and for the last decade she has been sick and well, with her career being interrupted. After her first struggle with her illness, she worked for several years on the Korea Broadcasting Company radio program as a guest worker, introducing books and film on human rights, and making a minimal wage to get by. When she became accustomed to her ailing body, she wrote columns for a feminist journal, “Ilda” and a monthly news magazine, “Wocus,” using “banda” as her pseudonym. Before she fell ill, she had directed a number of documentary films, for example “I am a physically challenged person” for RTV and co-wrote the book “Ratik, Palestine, and Me” with her co-workers at the Palestine Peace Coalition.

 

 

5. About the Book

The book tells the stories of a person with a sick body in a society where good health is a must. The author is a feminist, human rights activist, and a single person householder, and she was brimming with enough energy to prepare herself for triathlon sports. But after her trip to Palestine on a peace mission, she began suffering from an unexplainable dizziness, hemorrhage, and cancer. From then on, she chronicles her difficult and grueling struggle to come to terms with her sick self.
Even though we are all subject to minor and more serious illnesses, we view the hours of our sickness as a waste of time while struggling to overcome the condition. So then, do sick people have nothing to resort to but to get well? Do they have to give up a “holistic” “life” until they regain good health? Such a limited opinion not only alienates sick people but also healthy ones as well.
This book confronts the “sick body” up front. It starts off with the author’s detailed evaluation of the changes that took place when her body fell ill and presents her sharp and penetrating insight into the biases and discriminatory problems revolving around illnesses. She also provides a concrete analysis of the social structure and medical system, thereby offering a new idea for change while challenging the very notion of“health” and what is “normal.” All in all, it is an exploration of how to be ill in a “preferably” way.

5. About the Book

Beginning from something round and yellow, this dynamic story unfolds from left to right, top to bottom, center to peripheries, and expected to unexpected. On this yellow line, individuals walk, run, wait, hang, rest, and walk again. Thousands of traces of human action fill the space.
The story begins with a voice that delivers the weekly weather forecast. Each page depicts an ordinary scene in the morning. The yellow line of a bus stop changes into a cross walk, then stretchesunderground, then enters the water, rises up in the air, and settles down again on the ground. The weekly weather is changeable, as seen in a drastic temperature drop, sudden shower followed by a thunderstorm, and further complicated by particulate air conditions. However, it is no different from the future in that it is unpredictable.
A number of key characters -- a child going to school with his friend, a laborer fixing problems at his work site, an athlete training, and a traveler with a large bag --make up this short narrative, structured like a relay race connected with a baton. The individuals who pass the yellow line are walking, hanging, swimming, struggling, resisting, and resting. The narrative heightens along with the movement, and reaches a breath-taking peak in the second half.
Author and illustrator Lee Myungae fills the pages with individuals, distances, and the art of ordinary life built from various materials and drawing techniques.

4. About the Author

Jeong was born in Baenaetgol, a valley in Ulju, Ulsan. In 2015, she won the spring literary contest of the Gyeongnam Newspaper and the Farmer’s Newspaper for her stories “The House Where a Cat Lives” (pen name Gil Seong-mi) and “Fence,” respectively. Her short story, “Cumato” was published in New Writers of 2016 and she published a collection of short stories, The House Where a Cat Lives (Yeonam Seoga) in 2017. Some of her writing has also been published in I, Live There (MunhagNamu; 2019), a collection of stories by six writers.

 

 

5. About the Book

This is the second collection of stories by writer Jeong Jeonghwa. The eight stories in One Fine Crack focus on the lives of people whose relationships with their parents, children, spouses, friends and colleagues at work have become contorted.
The writer repeatedly introduces protagonists who yearn for a true life and pursue true values despite a reality surging with hypocrisy and lies. In so doing, she is asking readers about a life in pursuit of the true self. Interpretations offered by literary critic Professor Gu Mo-ryong also add depth to the understanding of the stories in this collection.
Jeong points the spotlight on the specific lives of the people whose family and social relationships have become distorted. She traces the sphere of life by drawing concentric circles of family (“A Story I Want to Remember,” “Ward 201”), husband and wife (“A Man Stacking a Rock Pile” “One Fine Crack”), school and work (“Mask,” “Hey You! Are You Okay?” “Cross-Dresser”) and friends (“Empty House”).
The title story, “One Fine Crack,” is about a married woman who prematurely enters menopause in her late thirties. After learning of her early menopause, she vacates the house late one night, leaving her child alone at home. Her husband, “I,” searches for the reason behind his wife’s sudden change of behavior and realizes that the crucial incident that drove a crack through their relationship was a trivial matter. The story shows that indeed the distance between couples can grow when the gap caused by one fine crack slowly expands.
In this story, the writer portrays a husband who is tied to his performance at work and fails to look after his family; a wife struggling with a career break and childrearing; and the relationship of a married couple that is falling apart under the strain of such factors. The image of the couple in conflict and struggling between work, family, and childcare triggers empathy in the reader, for it is what we, their contemporaries, are going through.

5. About the Book

This book is the third series on "fashion and movie," the first two being Fashion, Design Film and Fashion, Styling Film. While the first and second books describe how cinema costumes display storylines and the emotional changes of characters in diverse movies that transcend nationality and time, this book mainly focuses on music films which are particularly loved by Korean audiences.
The author classifies music films into four categories: rock, hiphop, and band; pop and jazz; classical; and musical. Among the many music films, she selected movies that show styles that have influenced pop culture and the fashion scene. This book not only introduces the styles of characters in movies but also tells behind-the-scene stories about the costume directors who created the costumes and their costumes and related fashion history. It goes without saying that the book describes stories about music that are essential to the music films.
We remember main characters of movies by their style: Freddie Mercury's jump suit, the green-and-yellow dress of Mia in Lala Land, the Beatles' moptop hair and collarless suits, and the red dress of Satine in Moulin Rouge. Fashion in movies implies the stories and emotions of the characters and helps audiences visualize and remember the movies. Since the 20th century, fashion items such as trench coats, rider jackets, blue jeans, and the black simple dress introduced through various movies have created popular trends in fashion. In the late 20th century, musicians' fashion had a great influence on trends. The musician Freddie Mercury made leather accessories, arm rings, hats, and studded belts popular fashion items in the 1980s. The Beatles, the icon of youth culture of their time, created Beatlemania and made their fans go crazy over their mod look.
Fashion Sings Music Films provides readers with a glimpse of fashion in movies as textbooks of styles, particularly musicians' fashion in music films. This will give readers an opportunity to know how music, fashion, and movies, which are the three axes of pop culture, create synergy with one another and how they are fused into pop culture.

As one of the highest authorities in the field of gifted children and creativity, Professor Kim Kyunghee was the elected chair for the Creativity Network of the National Association for Gifted Children. In 2018, she was the first foreigner to win the E. Paul Torrance Award, which is viewed by some as “the Nobel Prize of world creativity education”, drawing attention from global academia, the education community, and the media. She currently works as a tenured professor at William & Mary School of Education, which is the second-oldest institution of higher learning in America (after Harvard) and known for its “education of gifted children”

 

 

5. About the Book

Children’s creativity is to be fostered at home!
As the master of creativity education and the first foreigner to win the Torrance Award (2018), regarded by some as “the Nobel Prize in the field of creativity”, Professor Kim Kyunghee wrote Let Children Play Outside the Box with the aim to foster children’s creativity for the future of Korea. The book introduces how parents can nurture the creativity of their children based on the CAT theory, which was developed through thorough scientific research.
One of the critical skills that our children must possess to survive in society as adults is creativity. Creativity is not an innate quality decided by IQ, DNA or family history—it is a capability that can be nurtured by parents following the birth of their child. With over 30 years of experience in creativity education, the author defines 27 attitudes necessary to nurture children’s creativity, while emphasizing that parents, and mothers in particular, are the only people who can make this work through the “4S Climate.”
Part 1 introduces the 4S Climate that encourages children’s creativity. Consisting of sunlight, wind, earth and space, the Climate shows how parents’ words and attention can help children enjoy the learning process and creates freedom that further develops children’s unique characteristics and confidence. It contains everything about parents’ mindset and attitude, and conversation/Q&A methods as well as games that stimulate creativity.
Part 2 explores the “ION thinking skill,” a necessary asset for our children to prepare for their future. The author explains that this skill—consisting of “inbox thinking,” “outbox thinking,” “inbox critical thinking,” and “newbox thinking”—is much more helpful than IQ in educating gifted children. For children and parents who wish to develop creativity and convergence thinking, the book will be an ultimate guide to get used to the four thinking methods and continue to take gradual steps in finding valuable answers.

Selected as the Outstanding Publication Content in 2018 for production supportTo all the world’s endangered species and miho spine loaches
A children’s book about a miho spine loach, an endangered species and natural monument that used to inhabit the Miho River in Cheongju
A fiction based on ecological facts about freshwater fish that live in the Yeowu StreamMiho Spine Loach is an endangered native species and Natural Monument No. 454 that used to live in the Miho River, which runs through the cities of Cheongju and Sejong. Although the Miho River is where they were first discovered, they can no longer be found there, due to industrialization and poorly managed waterway policies that led to pollution. They are spotted in the Baekgok Stream on the upper side of the river, albeit rarely. The local communities have been executing restoration projects near the river. The Yeowu Stream of the Miho River was the perfect habitat for the loaches, which can only survive in a clean environment. Hi, It’s Me, Miho Spine Loach is a work of fiction about a miho spine loach who leaves its polluted hometown, the Yeowu Stream, and travels upstream to find clean water. The story that unfolds during the trip encourages readers to think about the sacrifices and cooperation of many freshwater fish that used to live in the Yeowu Stream, the battle against native and foreign species, controversy over the status of artificially bred miho spine loaches, and dams and fishways established for people’s convenience and what they mean to weak creatures in the ecosystem. The book raises a variety of questions about life, destroying the environment, and sense of community, which is why all readers around the world may relate to the story easily even though it’s about a species native to Korea.

Kim Yeon-su started studying illustration and comics in France. She received the Best Prize from the Asian Creative Story Contest for her graphic novel Children of an Old Kingdom, set in Angkor Wat. After the publication of her second novel, The Taste of Alsace, she moved to Jeju Island with her family and now lives on the island writing stories that will touch the hearts of readers.

 

 

5. About the Book

To many people, Jeju Island is a tourist spot, but the family in the novel makes the island their home, and readers get glimpses of their everyday life on the island. The artist/writer shares small but yet important episodes from her own daily life through illustrations in soft pastel colors and the hidden meanings one can discover in what seem to be trivial but yet meaningful everyday events. As the family begins to heal themselves emotionally and physically surrounded by awe-inspiring nature and caring neighbors, the book prompts readers to ponder on the real meaning of happiness by reading about this family that takes a step further to personal maturity. Jeju Island is a volcanic island with several hundreds of parasitic cones, called “oreum” in Korean, and a gotjawal forest, meaning “a forest in the stony field,” which refers to a forest formed on a rocky region created by volcanic eruptions. Usually made of trees, vines, bushes, and rocks, gotjawal forests remind visitors of nature as it was at the beginning of time. In this unique ecological surrounding of Jeju Island, the family in the graphic novel is able to take in the breath of life, which is pristine and healing. Believing in the power of nature to heal them, they settle down to their new life near a gotjawal forest, which teaches them there must be reasons for trials and hardships in the past, and instead of forcing themselves to adjust to fast-paced city life, they learn the beauty of slow living on Jeju Island. The wind that blows through the oreum whispers to us not to look back on the hardships of yesterday but to move on without worries or cares and to discover the power of life in nature. Readers will cheer on the family in the book as they climb up on the oreum and wait for spring to come.

5. About the Book

Minjun waited for Jangryol at the school gate. It all started yesterday when one of Minjun's friends broke his new model robot. Everyone advised him to bring the broken toy to Jangryol. Minjun wasn't that close to Jangryol, even though they were in the same class last year. Jangryol was a weirdo who picked up random things on the street. Minjun followed Jangryol at a distance. As ever, Jangryol went here and there looking for scraps to gather. Just then, Jangryol discovered something and caused Minjun to join in. After learning of Minjun's trouble, Jangryol invited him to his attic, whch was filled with broken toys. The two searched for parts to fix the robot, but in vain. At last, Jangryol suggested that he would “reform” the broken toy. It was given a new life in his hands. While the two were absorbed in fighting a monster from outer space, the robot broke once again. This time, Minjun took the lead reforming the toy. The next day, Minjun showed off his renewed toy to his friends and, catching sight of Jangryol, invited him to play. “Jangryol, let's play together!”
Jangryol the Master of Model Toys is a story about accepting friends as they are and opening up to others. In the beginning of the story, the scenes are confined by a red frame, but as the two boys reform the toy and become friends, the scenes break free from the frames. In the dynamic fight scene between the enemy from outer space, Minjun and Jangryol open up to each other and become true friends as they focus on their play. This story emphasizes that what appeared worthless can turn into something splended. Jangryol, Master of Model Toys, is a charming illustrated work with a story of communication and connection that sheds new light on the people around us.
